In July 2020, the Maryland Efficient Grant Application Council was authorized by the General Assembly (Chapters 484 & 485, Acts of 2020).
Creating uniform grant application forms, financial controls, and reporting requirements is being studied by the Council along with uniform performance progress reporting requirements. For State use in grant-making, the Council is considering how to adapt certain parts of the federal Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (uniform guidance), with any necessary modifications. The uniform guidance is meant to simplify administration for grant recipients and help prevent waste and fraud.
The Council will make recommendations on timeframes and deadlines for creating and adopting uniform application forms, deadlines for their use and implementation, and deadlines for grant-making entities to administer State and federal grants in accordance with the uniform guidance.
To interpret policy requirements and ensure effective implementation of uniform guidance, the Governorís Grants Office is to provide technical assistance to the Council.
Authorization for the Council ends June 30, 2025.
